As part of daily life at PAN I am getting very busy with my Press Photo History project – PressPhotoHistory.com (PPHP) – the project I started to map photo press agencies and photographers of Fleet Street. If you like the service you get from PAN then consider a donation to our funds at the PPHP.
As the project currently runs on thin air, the help of our industry team and some occational direct sponsorship (thanks!) + banner advertising from Mirrorpix …we are continually chasing more funds!
Aside from the historical data we are organising – the project is matching licensing fees with photo owners every day. The amount of communication and material flooding in from ex-agency staff and press photographers from Central Press to the Portman Press is piling up so I need to get organised, the site needs a refresh and researchers need to keep researching at the British Library.
• If any readers have experience tackling arts funding – let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
• So, if you have a real passion for the industry or just like the service you get from PAN you can always donate directly to the PPHP directly via a PayPal Donate button top right on the home page
Thanks – Will Carleton
